A singer says she feels very welcome in Aylesbury after holding a successful launch night for her new album in the town.

Casey Leigh, 21, launched ‘Catch 22’ at the Ex-Services Club in Aylesbury on Friday night in front of a capacity crowd.

More than 150 people packed into the club, with management reporting the venue had never been that full in its history.

Eighty-five CDs were sold at the venue with a further 47 online on Friday evening alone.

Casey said: “The evening went very well, I was very happy to see so many people there and a lot of people bought the album.”

Casey moved to the UK in July last year from Ireland.

Previously, she lived in Ireland having emigrated there from South Africa, where she was born, at the age of seven.

Casey said: “I have been made to feel very welcome in Aylesbury and I had a great reception when I went on stage on Friday.”

The album, which Casey describes as ‘soulful pop with a slight African beat’ features songs including Catch 22 and Um Mama.

She said: “I write most of my songs based on experiences I have been through and the effect they have on me and others around me.”
